As the weather warms up, we all love to spend afternoons outside, and what’s more fun than a day of tubing in Ohio? If you live in south-central Ohio, you’re right next to one of the most fun outdoor adventure purveyors in the state: Hocking Hills Adventures. The scenery in the Hocking Hills region is to die for, and what better way to experience it than from a tube or canoe floating breezily down the river? All that time outdoors is sure to whet your appetite, so afterward, you’ll want to fill up your tank and hit the road to Taqueria El Fogoncito, an authentic Mexican restaurant with some of the best tacos in the state. The whole trip is right around an hour and you won’t even go through an entire tank of gas. Check out the route on Google Maps.

Not within driving distance of south-central Ohio? We’ve got several fun pairings of places you can check out in other corners of the state!

For hours and a menu, check out the Tacos El Fogoncito website.

Combining tacos and tubing in Ohio into one day trip is so much fun you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner! For more great Ohio destinations, make sure to subscribe to the Only in Ohio daily newsletter and follow the Only in Ohio Facebook page.

What are some other river tubing trips in Ohio?

Enjoy tubing in Ohio on a hot summer day? Us too! One of our favorite bodies of water for epic lazy river tubing is the Little Miami River, which you will find in the southwest part of the Buckeye State. The Little Miami Canoe Rental has two locations along the river. To go tubing, you'll want to visit the Oregonia location. Out on the water, you'll feel at peace taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of this beautiful 111-mile river, which stretches across several counties in southwestern Ohio. Take the two-mile tube trip and let the river's current do all the work. You just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. This is a fantastic and accessible option for beginners and families alike, and a wonderful way to experience the splendor of the Buckeye State!
